video playback may vary based o your player and tv compatibility
Is my TV not HDR or is it my settings>
Set the HDMI port on your TV that you have the K8500 connected to to Enhanced mode.
Home>Settings>External Inputs>HDMI Signal Format.
Choices: Standard format, Enhanced format.
Set to Enhanced.
Your TV is HDR compatible - recognizes HDR content, will switch to HDR mode automatically (or should, unless there is a glitch in handshake between the K8500 and the TV) when you play an HDR disc.
Would be a good idea to turn off the K8500, change the HDMI port on the TV to Enhanced, and then turn the K8500 on again.
If you want to learn more about HDR on your TV, and HDMI/audio settings, 3D, etc., download the X850C FAQ in my sig and look at the Read this First tab, the HDR tab, and the 3D and DirecTV tabs apply as well. Obviously the Picture Settings tab info is based on the X850C and while it might be reasonable approximation, better to stick w/picture settings that other 930C owners are posting here.
